The grape variety comes from Algeria. There are about 70 synonyms, some of which are Amar Bou Amar, Ahmer Bou Ahmer, Angelina, Angelino, Argelina, Boal Babosa, Casta Tinta, Flame Tokay, Hamer Bou Hamer, Llamada Culo de Horza, Olho de Cocco, Olho de Pargo, Rouge Fils de Rouge and Uva de Ragol. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The late ripening red berry vine is sensitive to frost and susceptible to both mildew and botrytis. Since it is only moderately sensitive to drought, it is suitable for hot areas. The variety was a cross-breeding partner in the new Millennium Grape. It is mainly used as a table grape but also as a wine grape. There are areas of cultivation in North Africa, the USA (in California as Flame Tokay), Argentina, Spain and Portugal. In Algeria, it was used until the middle of the 20th century for mass production wines blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. However, no stocks were reported in 2010 (Kym Anderson).
